Dance music kingpins Watch The Ride consisting of DJ Randall, DJ Die and Dismantle supply a crisp cut bouncer of an instrumental straight out the gate for Bristol based mic controller Emz to shell down for the first single to drop from the newly curated Hospital Mixtape from rising star and top tier selector, Lens. Legendary doesn’t quite cut it - ‘READY4DEM’ will be rolling through raves left, right and centre. Three rave music pioneers in their own right, Watch The Ride have torn up the world of dance music ever since the power-trio’s inception back in 2019. Responsible for some of the coldest soundsystem shredders, Watch The Ride are quickly racking up an impressive back catalogue of releases paying homage to the heritage of UK rave music - including ‘Original Format’ featuring the iconic grime MC D Double E, their debut ‘Retrograde’ EP home to electrifying bangers including ‘That’s Da Shit’ and ‘Abyss’, and their jungle-infused standalone remix of Gardna’s ‘Good Time Not A Long Time’ featuring Omar. Bringing the sound of their roots into the airwaves of today, you can also catch Watch The Ride with their very own Rinse FM show as well as bringing untestable performances to clubs and festivals around the globe. With the ability to slay any beat which crosses his path, Emz is a profound master of his craft with a weighty selection of releases spanning an array of imprints including DJ Die’s very own GutterFunk, Pineapple Records, and No More Mailouts. No stranger to working with Watch The Ride, this is the second time the Bristol-based wordsmith has joined forces with the legendary powerhouse. Their initial collaboration ‘Stop Lights’, also featuring the vocals of fellow vibe-bringer Prima, saw huge success and soon became an irresistible 150BPM anthem. After a five-year hiatus, Hospital Records are extremely proud to present the return of their beloved mixtape series. With previous editions compiled by S.P.Y, Fred V & Grafix and Etherwood, and with a nod back to the iconic artist-led Hospital Mix series put together by London Elektricity, Logistics, Danny Byrd, Nu:Tone and Cyantific, Lens is swiftly on her way to joining the ranks of D&B royalty. Get locked and loaded for a sub-thumping, 17-track selection of new and exclusive cuts from Camo & Krooked, Fade Black, Watch The Ride & Emz, Logistics, Subwave, TC, Whiney, Winslow, Lally & Lens plus heaps more. Touching down at clubs, festivals and airwaves worldwide, Lens is in huge demand, relentlessly unleashing her untestable armoury of tunes at a long list of legendary shows including Sun & Bass, Audioriver, Fabric and Drumsheds. For stay-at-home listeners, Lens also hosts the monthly Hospital Records Rinse FM show. Appearing on her very own Hospital Mixtape compilation is just the start of an extremely busy 2022. Keep an eye out for more releases soon appearing on another legendary D&B imprint and, naturally, a non-stop schedule of explosive DJ sets around the UK, Europe and the rest of the world. The ‘Lens Mixtape’ will be available on limited edition cassette tapes as well as on all major streaming platforms, which will include a continuous DJ mix of compilation cuts together with some fresh Hospital Records heat. The very first single ‘READY4DEM’ by Watch The Ride & Emz officially drops on Friday 25th February - keep it locked.
